12:31AM - ACTORS NEEDED!

The University of South Alabama's TV station is beginning work on an anthology series in the vein of The Twilight Zone and we need actors. Seeking men and women in their 20s or early 30s, all shapes, sizes, races, etc. We need quite a few actors and even though we can't pay, if you're in the acting field it's more experience and possibly something you can put on a resume. Plus it's really fun.

All interested parties should either call and leave a message at the Jag TV office for Thomas Smith (phone# 461-1515), or you can email Jag TV at jagtv@jaguar1.usouthal.edu and you can also visit the Jag TV website: www.southalabama.edu/jagtv, click over to the message board and post there for more information.

We look forward to hearing from you!

After surviving the ravages of Hurricane Ivan, the USA Film CLub is back, baby!

This week it's another double feature. First we'll be screening Danny Boyle's heroin saga Trainspotting. Immediatly following that will be Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Terry Gilliam's adaptation of the Hunter S. Thompson gonzo tale of two guys in Vegas with a trunk full of drugs*.

The screening will begin at the usual time (7:00 pm this friday) and at the usual place (the Humanities Building Auditorium, room 170.) So skip whatever you usual do on a Friday night...


and come on down to the Film Club.

*The USA Film Club, it's members and sponsor, do not in any way encourage the use of illegal drugs in any way shape or form...Just Say No, Kids!

P.S. - We unfortunately had to cancel last weeks Roger and Me screening. We have not decided whether to work it into this semesters schedule or wait until the spring. We'll let you know when we decide, if you happen to have an opinion on the matter, feel free to comment.

4:15PM - Star Wars Episode III Title finally revealed...

Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

But for the most part, who really cares anymore? I'll just paste in this article from chud.com about th whole thing:

"After much speculation, after much argument, after many people giving up and ceasing to care, the title for the final Star Wars prequel to punish fans for daring to love the work of George Lucas has been announced.

Revenge of the Sith.

It echoes Return of the Jedi, along with a nod to that film’s original title, Revenge of the Jedi. It sounds dark and menacing. It certainly is better than the last two film titles. And it’s already available on t-shirts, as these prequels are about telling a story and not marketing.

While I have been massively disappointed in the Star Wars prequels thus far, let's hope that maybe it took two warm-up swings for Lucas to figure out how to make this thing work."

You can visit www.starwars.com for all the details from Lucas...in this case "details" meaning 'you can now buy our shirt!'.

Current mood: disappointed

1:05PM - RIP

Jerry Goldsmith died.

Read more...Collapse )

Current mood: tired

11:57AM - Here's where that "movie discussion" thing kicks in.

Well, the Superman movie has seen more directors than any movie I can remember. The latest one to sign on is X-men director Bryan Singer. So, whadaya think?

Personally, I was sad to hear that Micheal Bay wasn't attached anymore. This would have been the perfect franchise for him. Big. Jingositic. Everything that Bay stands for.

11:56AM - Review: Spiderman 2

Well it took seeing the movie three time for me to actual do it, but here it is. My review of Spiderman-2Collapse )
